    Oh that looks very nice sir!

    If you torched the top cap, may I ask how you removed the black delrin insulator? Tried a hammer but I might be too fearful of hitting hard?

    Thanks!

    1) Leave the cap screwed into the tube

    2) Take off the switch

    3) Take out the positive brass screw

    4) Insert the flat end of a 7/32 drill bit and put the base of the tube on a soft towel.

    5) Tap with hammer gently until delrin pops out (the positive brass button does not need to be removed, it will stay in the delrin)


    If you decide to do the switch, just do the very bottom piece. Take out the hex post. I found after blueing, it got rather sticky on the press.

    Also, after torching, do not quench in water... Just allow it to air cool (takes a looooooong time to cool... BE CAREFUL!)

    Also, after torching, you may notice some corrosion develop on the threads from the heat reaction in the metal. Be sure to clean it up nicely with a wire wheel.

    Let me know if you need any more help!

    NP man. What I did was sat the cap on a metal bowl, put the torch on low, and put the blue flame on the cap while slowly turning the bowl.

    Once the cap was glowing an even red, I stopped and let it cool. Took a couple rounds to get it to the blue I wanted.

    Got my replacement switch, torched the button and did a vertical brush on the tube.

    I think i'm finally done with how I want this setup!

    Take care of and clean your Legacy. Why? Voltage under load!

    Here's a test I just did. Legacy 350 tube plus kick extension tube. Battery: Effest IMR 18500 v2 1100 mah. Atomizer: IGO-L with a 1.4 ohms coil.

    Dirty Legacy, received as is, purchased used via Facebook:
    No load: 4.14 v
    Under load: 3.68 v (average of 4 hits)
    Voltage drop: 0.46 v

    Cleaned and polished bass contacts
    No load: 4.13 v
    Under load: 3.73 v (average of 4 hits)
    Voltage drop: 0.40 v

    Above plus Noalox on all the tubes threads, on the top and bottom screw threads
    No load: 4.12 v
    Under load: 3.85 v (average of 4 hits)
    Voltage drop: 0.27 v

    From a 0.46 to a 0.27 voltage drop in 5 minutes of easy work. :)

    Thanks

    1- I use the Tankometer:
    The Tankometer

    But before I got one, I used my multimeter, volts mode, prongs on positive and negative posts of RBA and fired the mod. Simple.

    2- I bought two used Legacy

    One from
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/THEMODTRADER/

    and the other from
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/vapeauctionsunruled/

    You can also try those:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/therealvapeauctions/

    Good luck in your search!
